It’s important for everyone to get involved in their community but especially business owners/leaders. No business operates in full isolation from its surroundings. At minimum, you will want a friendly and cooperative relationship with your local public officials and community leaders. You will also want your employees to feel like they live in a place with a good quality of life. It is simple good business sense to be connected to and care about what takes place in your local environment.
Every one of us has a strength or talent we can share. While fundraising is often necessary, volunteering is just as important. Time is a precious resource we all equally share. Just because you may not be able to make a big donation, it doesn’t mean your efforts aren’t needed or appreciated.
